that senator paul had missed distinction from most of the republicans in the senate on the foreign policy issues, but that he seems to think he has the momentum going forward and is kind of playing a longer game when it comes to how these things work. host: i want to ask you about a piece in the morning paper that you wrote, the president's focus on big bird, binders and baionets may backfire. >> i had some interesting conversations with people that conduct these polls. you answer your phone, who are you going to vote for? these are telling me that the tactics that president obama is using, talking about diners, bayonets and big birds, they're rubbing people the wrong way. in part because they want to focus on jobs in the economy, which is this big, darker issue that the country is facing right now. it's worrying people a lot. and so, the idea that he can talk about things like the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's
." >> this is on foreign policy. the american ambassador to libya was recently killed. syria has defended -- descended into civil war. united states sends hundreds of billions of dollars in federal aid to countries around the world democracies and dictators. what should be the basic guiding principles of american foreign policies? >> fundamentally, i would have to say that freedom is something we need to encourage across the world. that me talk about christopher's stevens and what happened. his death along with three others is a tragedy, and that has been in a lot of people's thoughts and prayers. we need to get to the bottom of that, and i'm not here to speculate on who did what, but we need to find out and the american people need to know. i hope it will be transparent and can be clear so, two things will come out of it. people need to be held accountable, but also we can learn from that, so in the future if we have diplomats abroad we can ensure we are protecting them. as it relates to other countries, and there is turmoil in the middle east, from my perspective, that is one thing that we have don
and what we can do for our foreign policy and. we are way ahead of everyone, including china. we have the best universities. we have entrepreneurialism spirits. we have a political system. i will take us over china and others. we're all gonna be thinking about the polarization next tuesday. we have the trifecta of stimulating the sluggish growth, getting on top of our debt problems, and investing in our future of the same time. i think we can do it. if we can, there is no reason to talk about american decline. >> i want the students, friends, faculty, please start thinking about questions. linocut the microphone. i do not know how many we will take because of time constraints. i want to ask our guests one other question about the future. in many ways, every administration is tested not by the things that they plan to do, but to the things that happened that they did not expect. the surprises. i guess the question for all of you looking to the future is what do you think will be the surprise for the next administration in asia? we will start with chris and work our way back. >> the qui
, columnist of the post. in addition to that, today, foreign policy magazine, which is a well regarded magazine in washington, d.c., long history, they had two people. harold duron barbuh and jerone moulasasa. i'm sorry if i'm not pronouncing that right. they had gone to dubai. dubai based television to the compound to do reporting and they found in the compound stuff that our own f.b.i. didn't find. so at this point, i think that it was jake tapper of abc news wrote there is a drip, drip, drip about this. the administration set themselves up for this by blaming video in the first place. i actually am going to complain. i don't think romney brought this up enough. if he had, other reporters would have paid attention earlier. >> bob: it was smart. they found copy of "new yorker" magazine. >> dana: no, they found a letter from him. >> bob: they did? >> kimberly: you should be concerned. >> dana: dated september 11. >> bob: on the other hand i would like to see how many other consulates around the country and embassy asked for backup help. six weeks prior to the event, which nobody expect
to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut
's leadership when it comes to foreign policy and military issues. he has shown that he can make incredibly bold decisions that need to be made to keep us safe. , and to keep our interests abroad save as well. host: thank you for your time in talking to our viewers this morning. guest: thanks for having me. host: we continue to look at swing states and new hampshire is on our list tomorrow. we will see you at 7:00 a.m. eastern time.

interesting intelligent comments about mitt romney foreign policy and domestic policy. but john sunuunu has a different idea why colin powell is backing barack obama. >> frankly when you take a look at colin powell. you have to wonder if that is based on issues or is there a slightly different reason for preferring barack obama. >> what reason would that be. >> when you have someone from your own race who is president obama, i applaud powell for standing for him. >> cenk: the neo-cons and the fact that powell is crossing the republicans--no, no, no. this is what he sees. he sees colin powell and barack obama, look at that, they're both black. that's a classic case of projection. he thinks us republicans we vote based on race. if there is a black quite versus a white guy we vote for the white guy. that's what cool bin powell is doing, too. no colin powell has a brain. 's not a gut r rctctn racisistt liou j jn sunuunu. apparently he felt bad about this again this is the eighth time he has done it on the campaign trail specifically about race. he walked it back today and said i do not doubt it

the foreign policy debate. like many of your viewers, we were surprised when governor romney some -- presented that as the first question in that debate. we made a note of the day after that debate. host: do you think this issue is one that is in the top five for voters in colorado? guest: no. for voters who are opposed to the obama administration, it makes their top five, but the top five for most people, three out of those spots are the economy, the economy, the economy. after that is energy and if you look for democrats, social issues. health care being among them. host: thanks for your time. >> a look at efforts of the romney campaign to win in colorado. president obama has been to this state, he carried by a large number. how are republicans responding? >> i think since mid-september, particularly since the first debate, republicans are very energized right now. i think getting out and responding, you're seeing record visits by the republican candidate, mitt romney as well as his running mate, paul ryan. >> describe the ground game for republicans and what you need to have in place in ord
night, the presidential debate was on foreign policy, andrew's question is about foreign policy. andrew, welcome. please, ask your question. >> [inaudible] >> moderator: okay, thank you. i think we had a mic problem, andrew, but i'll restate the question. andrew said, does current u.s. foreign policy in the middle east undermine our national security? do you agree or disagree? what steps should be taken in foreign policy in the middle east? mr. mourdock? one minute. mourdock: well, our foreign policy is of critical concern, of course, and in the middle east we must always, first and foremost, stand by our great friend, israel, and also we must be making the message that no options can be taken off the table as we look towards a nuclear iran. but to the bigger point of our national security, you know, it was the former head of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mullen, that said the greatest threat to our national security is our own national debt. the fact that we have now spent ourselves into a $16 trillion debt is inexcusable. the fact that we continue to see the debt limit raised and
where there are more mexicans. you're right. this idea of focusing on foreign policy rather than on economic policy, not a good play. you saw mitt romney try to do that early on. he was in texas, for instance, early on in this race, and talking about those issues. but, again, in texas, that's a state he is going to win. have i been quite surprised that you haven't seen mitt romney out on the stump with people like susana martinez. he hasn't been out with brian sandoval. >> you've named those names. and to that point the ad i referred to might appeal to cuban americans in florida. but we know he has to extend his reach to the latino community beyond florida. with that said, i don't know what he would present on the table with immigration, but he has allies that are available to him, successful latinos within his own party that he has not reached out to broaden a message of, i don't know, economic recovery or whatever, the american dream story that susana martinez forever offered up at the rnc. >> yeah, very powerful message. >> absolutely. >> you heard from that governor. and in r
and not the modern culture that feels idaho with dairy cows. we need agriculture policy and foreign policy that fits her to her family farms here in new york. and that's what i'll absolutely be focused on. what i've have spoken to farmers around the district, they're not looking for special treatment, that they want to be treated fairly, not be subjected to unfair competition from the big guys out there in the midwest. >> moderator: congressman gibson, 45 seconds on the farm bill. gibson: he's been tracking it all along. i've been very involved in the process. i've got many amendments into the bill. i'm very proud to say with a dairy security there. dairy farmers are now not even cover the cost of production were going to fix that with the martian were putting in there. i've worked with once a shoe from red hook, beginning farmer leader to make sure we inspire new generations to come to the farm and talk about grants and loans and conservation programs. i am proud to say of the friend of the farmer from the farm bureau and even the pharmacy endorsement. i would tell you earlier this week i did an ev
's sort of how he's promising it. and foreign policy i do fear the hawkishness of the line that governor romney's taken. talking about going to war with iran if they even have the capability to build a nuclear weapon. that's preemptive. and i think that's a very dangerous pattern to go down. we did that before with iraq. i don't think preemptive war is anything more than war. >> it's always food. it's always food. i'm obsessed with a place in east elmhurst queens, a french pastry shop. i've gone there the last two weekends, including taking a big subway ride and hiking over there. it's not near a subway. "argo" i loved the movie. go ben aflex. i think he did a great job. i'm going to be seeing "lincoln." obviously love doris kearns goodwin's book. >> we don't know which one of these guys will be marching towards the finish line on november 6th. this is just you go around the country and people, you go to airports, and the dollar bill didn't come with it but it just sort of seems a nice touch. don't you think? >> we'll have more of my conversation today at 12:00 noon. we're going to talk
. >> thank you, shepard, new documents recovered from the benghazi compound by foreign policy magazine show in the early morning hours of september 11th, they believed they were under surveillance. this person was photographing the u.s. special mission. furthermore this person was part of the police unit sent to protect the mission. this information is consistent with an online post from sean smith, an avid gamer shortly before the consulate was overrun by terrorists and smith was killed. he said assuming we don't die tonight, we saw one of our police that guard the compound taking pictures. the classified cable reviewed by fox news shows that the situation on the ground was so dire that in the long term the consulate a would take the extreme step of moving in with the cia at the annex which also c under attack on 9/11. literally their back up was against the wall. they had no options left. telling voters on air force one there is a robust investigation. that is the same talking point we had from the state department on the question surrounding that classified cable, shep. >> shepard: cathe
that the president is doing a good job. this is sort of like a foreign policy crisis where you don't step in it and you actually maybe even step aside and i think that could be a sign of leadership as well. but he's certainly not hurting himself by awkwardly campaigning as if nothing was going on. >> i think that's right. i think mitt romney did the only thing he could do which is to lay low. a grace period, i guess, and the president is going to be back on the campaign trail. mitt romney didn't even mention the name yesterday. perhaps he learned from his mistake, if you believe that they were a mistake, from the attack in benghazi. >> clearly i think the campaign thought he jumped in far too quickly in benghazi and that was a move they regretted. he was out yesterday in florida campaigning. there were attacks against barack obama's leadership style and reference to fema and the role of government in federal emergencies. but i think this quantifies -- i think it changes the race in the sense that it changes the tone of the race in the last few days and i think the president has managed --
i support the president is he is strong on foreign policy. he has never let college students down. he supports women's rights, both in the workplace and in regards to health care, and with leaders around the country this past week and also in the world -- our foreign policy is at an all- time high with leaders across the world. the majority of leaders in the world support the president's reelection. i am not in favor of starting another war. we need to bring our men and women home. i thank them for the service. we have a lot of infrastructure to rebuild, especially after sandeep. >> let me get another perspective. a romney supporter, what do you have to say? >> i was watching the president's speech, and he is putting the first half of the speech, speaking about how his policies have worked and how we are where we are, blaming somebody else, and in the second half of his speech, he gave a long list, basically a slap in the face explaining how serious he was about these things. >> why don't i switch it to what you think about mitt romney? why do you support mitt romney? >> when he h
amnesia, or romnesia, however you want to speak about it, when you talk about foreign policy and they forget that it was president bush. that got us into the worst foreign policy debacle in the history of this country. we will be digging ourselves out of the hole in iraq for a long, long time. because of failed intelligence and a variety of other thins. these guys remained -- remind me of a sports announcer. you watch the beginning of the football team and the analyst says, this team is going to win for sure, this is going to be a blowout. then the game is over and they were wrong they don't mention that they were wrong and made bad predicts. that's what these guys remind me of. you guys cause halved of these problems, 3/4 of these problems and you turn around and try to blame obama. but the american people are smart they pay close attention when the time is right. that's why you see obama doing well in places like ohio. >> again, host: again, we're being joined by tim ryan, a democrat from youngstown, ohio, via skype. we go to a caller from ohio. good morning, john. caller:
they can't run on the foreign policy record because it many shot through with lies and it's in collapse. the only thing they have left, their default position is to run these offensive ads. megyn: kirsten, your thoughts. >> the on one that is an obama ad is a lena dunham ad. i like her a lot. i think she is a great comedian. megyn: i was surprised the obama campaign usedder in this way for this ad. >> it's a very targeted message targeted towards like rall educated women. the kind of women who watch their show. it's in the humor of that generation it's sort of ironic and i don't understand the outcry over it. this idea that suddenly she mentioned he sex, what are we going to .. it's not that controversial. the michael moore ad is offensive. but the obama campaign has nothing to do with that. they would never put out an ad like that. megyn: move on is partnering with them. >> i don't think move on should be associated with it either buff it isn't the obama campaign. megyn: kirsten made a point that ronald reagan made a joke about losing his virginity. he said i used to be a democrat. he
a fair chance to win in 2008 and then he could decide to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has been buried over the past four years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came in his trillion dollars stimulus would get unemployment well under where it is now. he said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not something done at the state level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he said it was going to be less -- that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one- term proposition. i agree with him, and that is why
cannot run from their record or positions. the last foreign policy debate, i was not sure whether governor romney was going to endorse president obama. we roman catholic say that boy had an epiphany. governor romney went from sank it was a mistake we did not leave 30,000 troops in iraq. he sounded like he was against the war from the beginning. i was amazed. he went from labeling russia last year as the single greatest geopolitical threats to the united states and even opposed the new gun control treaty that every republican said to push that, he said he would not have supported it. all of a sudden we can work with russia. you know that. did you hear that? i thought, turn that tv up. he is now putin's best friend. when as in the second debate what would you commit to, he said it depends. with these guys it depends on everything. it always depends who they're talking to or where they are. it depends on what the vote is. it always depends. i am from pennsylvania. the grandfather always said be aware of the convertists. one issue they cannot bring themselves to say they now agreed wi
.s. foreign policy subjective. for the leaders, using these commitments is not only the right thing to do but make sense at a strategic level. >> security has very closely tied together a very basic level we've recognized the health of the country is clearly linked to their prosperity and their productivity and their economic well-being. that is key to the stability. >> here at csis the one to understand the decade teach about the nexus between health and security. the senior men and women in our government and military have grappled with these issues. admiral william fallon, former head of both u.s. pacific and central command, spearheaded military engagement during a 48 year career. >> the military has great cadel lenni to respond. i would say that the military is much better suited to the emergency -- we have a terrific logistics capability. we have accumulated medical and medical related capability. >> we found of the decade of military and health challenges has spread many solutions particularly in the way we provide medical care to those wounded on the battlefield. >> we learn that
, they have made it clear that they also have a very different view on foreign policy. when we entered the warren arrived, they said we should commit 30,000 troops -- entered the war in iraq, they said we should commit 30,000 troops. they refused to commit to an end date in afghanistan. his national security adviser -- the governor is running away from everything he said in the last year-and-a-half. the congressman is running away from everything he voted for. i am not making this up. this is real. ladies and all men -- ladies and johnson, they are counting on the american people -- ladies and gentlemen, they are counting on the american people to have an overwhelming case of bemis on november 6th. all of a sudden -- case of amnesia on november 6th. the president has a new term for it. he calls it romnesia. all of a sudden, he does not have a five trillion dollar tax cut. congressman ryan, the guy whose budget cut everything 19% across the board, the guy who pledged to voucherize medicare, all of a sudden, he does not plan to cut their programs. he plans to slow their growth. he elimin
this country. you can choose a foreign policy that reckless and wrong or you can choose the kind of leadership that i provided, that's steady and strong. you can choose to turn back the clock 50 years for women and immigrants or in this election, you can stand up for that basic principle enshrined in our founding documents that all of us are created equal. black, white, hispanic, asian, native american, young, old, rich, poor, gay, straight, able, disabled, no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, you've got a place in america. you can make it here if you try. that's what we believe. new hampshire, we've been through tough times. but we've been through tough times before and we're tougher. we always come out on top. we always bounce back. because we pull together, because we look after one another. because we don't leave anybody behind. because when we succeed, we prop that door open and bring those who are following behind us. we pull them through. that's who we are. our destiny is not written for us. it's written by us. we don't go backward. we look
. >> mayor, i want to turn to foreign policy really quickly. president obama did an interview with joe and mika that's going to run tomorrow morning in its entirety on "morning joe." this is what he said about the benghazi attacks. take a listen. >> my attitude on this is if we find out that there was a big breakdown and somebody didn't do their job, they'll be held accountable. ultimately as commander in chief i'm responsible. i don't shy away from that responsibility. my number one responsibility is to go after the folks that did this and make sure we get them. i have a pretty good track record in doing that. >> how much has the benghazi attack become a political liability for the president as we head into election day, mayor? >> what you just heard there was a rational commander in chief doing what needs to be done to lead a country. that's what he's been doing for four years. that's how he focused on bin laden and focused on how we need to do positive things around the globe. i'm a mayor, too. i know the moment that something happens, a crime for instance even in my own town, you d
debate, which was about foreign policy, but in many ways that debate was about being the commander in chief and being able to lead, and i think that's what we'll see president obama try to portrait over the next 48 hours, and i think governor romney is going to try to do that as well. >> all right. we'll be watching closely. thank you, mark. good to see you. >>> live pictures from atlantic city, new jersey, where hurricane sandy is pounding the coast. the eye of the storm expected to make landfall there between 8:00 and midnight eastern tonight. as we mentioned, president obama, he is cancelling campaign events to stand by those being hit by this beast of a storm. >> my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need, we will be there. >> we'll hear the president live later in the hour about 20 minutes or so is when he is scheduled to speak from the white house. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. so why should our anniversary matter to you? because for 200 years, we've been
diplomacy in the region, and it's part of secretary clinton's economic state agenda. for foreign policy goals, the bottom line is that we need to create more links between the new democracies and american industry. we don't have enough of them. let me conclude by repeating what i said at the outset. there are daunting challenges throughout the region. we need no more proof the that attack in september that took the life of four of our own, and left scars in north africa, but president obama made clear no american violence makes america retreat from the region. we'll bring justice to harm us and our friends, but we will not be detoured from siding with history. we will support our allies, we'll partner with the new democracies to achieve the aspirations of our people. we will be partners. you know, in the last few weeks, i have been reminded of my first trip to north africa. this was early in 2010. i had only been in this job for a few months, and it was before the advent of the arab spring, and i was there to talk to a number of our north african business leaders and educators about pnb
romney's foreign policy and i think it's spore addic that really matters. i see this as an opportunity for the romney campaign to try to distract from what is a very serious endorcement from general powell. >> let's get to another topic here, karen. an article in the "washington post." it's a new one that argues there is a high likelihood president obama could win the electoral vote but not the popular vote, which would be a first for an incumbent. could we survive the hyperpartisanship that that scenario would likely cause? >> i don't know, alex. i mean, i really hope that doesn't happen for so many reasons. i think it would be terrible for the country for so many reasons. we've already become so partisan. i'm actually have to tell you they was skeptical of some of the modelling that we've seen going on. i think a lot of the polls and a lot of the modelling has underestimated the number of latinos and african-american voters. we have 8 million more latino voters, for example, voting in 2012 than we did in 2008. most of the polling models i've seen don't account for those kinds of demo
by catherine herridge and jennifer griffin they get broken and come forward in foreign policy magazine. you expect the white house take this and comment on it. it's delay of game. you get in denials an not say why these people have an agenda. you have pundits saying it's political agenda. for the lawmakers they don't. senator lindsey graham and senator john mccain who spent a lot of time investigating and this pushing this forward because of concern for our con shuts all across the world and as well as the lives of those four, pushed forward and say waited a second, we need the people who perpetrated this imcrew. the president said he is going to bring justice to them. we got one of them. they are in to your knowledge. we can't get access to them. he penned a letter signed by the. we need in there he had some success. >> steve: absolutely. senator graham, senator chambliss from the great state of georgia they got access to the guy. you would think that the white house would want to get access to the guy. nothing. here is lindsey graham. >> this duration is -- administration is trying to run
obama is, you know, he's the obviously the first and only black president he's policy an outsider in other really significant ways. he has a unusual name. he was largely grew up in foreign country. he, you know, he worked adds a community organizer with very poor people in a housing project until the south side of chicago. these are things that are extremely suspicious to lots of people in our country. and instead of talking about it doctor directly they use the other terms to code him to describe him as outer calling him a socialist. calling him a communist. these things that manifestly have nothing do with who he is. interest thing about barack obama, if you read his awe disty of hope, his memoir, if you look at the great speech the greatest moment it's about conciliation. this is what how he sees himself. this is an he did want to be a great president. he wanted to bid for greatness and by getting a grand bar iman. doing something bipartisan. he is born conciliators. that's who he is. the sad thing at the end of the day, the tragedy of barack obama is that he was a man who was
